The Wilson Blade 98S is the perfect racquet for those looking to harness all the control of a modern tennis game. The 18 x 16 string pattern and light swingweight give this racquet a solid feel with high level RPMs, giving you added spin and power. An Amplifeel handle system filters out unwanted vibrations for improved performance and a cleaner feel. For a good balance of control and spin in a traditional-feeling racquet, this frame has a lot to offer, including the brand new Spin Effect Technology which adds up to 3.3 times more string movement and 69% faster snapback, making your shots harder, more controlled, and full of wicked spin.

Tennis Express Reviews
Spin, power and flexibility
Still hate the short grip, but it feels awesome with the 1BH. Awesome racquet with the Wilson Ripspin 16g. A little too much power for me at 55lbs but the spin with the strings and frame a very noticeable. I recommend this to any player who wants to produce more heavy spin and a bigger second serve. Balance is in the middle strung. I would switch to it if it didnt have such a short grip and would add silicone to the handle.
Wilson 98s blade
I was super satisfied w tennis express and their shipping quickness and customer service. Unfortunately I am not liking the racket. I play w the 93 K Factor Blade and I should have gotten the new blade as the smaller head. I do like the lightness for teaching and feeding tennis balls but I prefer the hit with my smaller, stiffer frame.
S is for Spin
Great Racquet! I really enjoyed the spin and the power it provided. With the more open string pattern I could feel and see my ball spinning more than usual. Im a one hand backhand player so I prefer a heavier, smaller frame to be more accurate. Although I prefer weight the 10.4 oz. frame felt like I could swing the racquet through the air a bit more effortlessly. And it was still stable enough to return faster shots. Loved it excited to try the new 95S coming out.
The racquet was delivered on time, exactly as ordered. Plays well, but 20g of lead tape on the handle improved the feel a lot.
This is an excellent raquet, I improved my game very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very crisp and powerful racquet. Good stability compared with its light weight. Highly recommended for junior players. TE provides excellent purchase experience, as well.
Demoed this just for fun. It was great! It has just the right weight. I can swing away and still have control with great spin. 4G feels great in this! I know someone who has Wilson Spin string in there and likes that too. They said they are buying a couple more themselves. I have a couple and both have 4G in strung in the mid 50s. Serves are fantastic with it! Probably my favorite part, but love this. Great job Wilson. OH, the cosmetics are really nice too.
This racket Wilson blade 98s is a great product. I enjoy playing with it, has great feel and control. You can hit great shots with this racket , good on serve. Would recommend to anyone!
